The strange structure in the first and second is a rock climbing practice structure at Marymoor Park where our encampment was. The geese in the second shot, or some of their cousins, were visitors every day. Our morning departure took us past this building, whose windows reflected Mt. Rainier against the morning sky. Now you know you are in Seattle in the last two, as we ate lunch with the Space Needle as the backdrop, and celebrated the conclusion of our walk beneath its towering presence. Tourists I met later in the week had seen the closing ceremonies from the observation deck.
